How to Spot Fake Fashion

  1. Super-Low Price? If it's a too-good-to-be-true deal, it's probably not real.
  2. Poor Workmanship? Loose threads? Broken zippers? It's likely a fake.
  3. Stamped Logo? Is the logo authentic and engraved (not stamped) on zipper pulls, nameplates and shoe soles?
  4. Where Was it Made? Most counterfeits are made in Asia, so a "Made in China" label is highly suspect.
  5. How Does it Arrive? If your designer item arrives in a plastic bag with price tags affixed, it's likely a fake.
